The entrance of the private home seems modest but the interior opens up to reveal a spacious living area surrounded by glass windows. The color scheme inside the home is as neutral as possible with pops of yellow and orange being used to add some color. Wood is the major component of the beachfront residence along with a steel framework that gives it a perched silhouette. A living area three serene bedrooms and 2 lovely traditional bathrooms complete this beautiful escape that is priced at $4 million.
The classic stone cottage is a simple structure; but it can be dark inside. Updating a small space with natural light can make all the difference and won’t affect the basic structure. The highlands of Scotland are home to many stone cottages and lodges; many are still used as primary residences today while others are available for short stays like Tigh Phadraig in the Elgol region.
The orientation of the house and its smart design help keep it cool even on the hottest of days while the use of concrete labs and stone walls on the outside brings privacy to a structure that sits on a corner lot.
Intentionally designed by Auxau Atelier d’Architecture to keep both initial costs and maintenance to a minimum the nifty new addition adds a small breakfast zone and a sleek contemporary kitchen to the existing traditional home.
A sleek kitchen workstation in the corner a central island wrapped in wood and a small breakfast zone fit perfectly into this newly added zone. Open floating shelves along with closed cabinets stripped-down industrial-style lighting and some indoor greenery complete the quirky ingenious setting with plenty of personality.
